Grunge is usually a boy's club. Yet, something about the music's rugged imperfection and dark subject matter always captivated Smaise. But, with widely varying tastes in music she is also strongly rooted in early jazz, and folk music and rock and roll from the 60’s and 70’s. Weaving soulful melodies and driven guitar
tones amidst moody grooves, Smaise delivers to you her own
brand of Grunge Folk.
SMAISE is an accomplished singer, songwriter, collaborator and
music teacher. Along side her solo project, she is 1/3rd of Stoner
Folk band Sound of the Sun. With her bandmates in S.O.T.S.,
she sang background vocals on former TOTO frontman Jean
Michel-Byron’s new album (tba). She also sang and played keys
for Vancouver Prog Rock band Trailight’s second album ‘The
Primitive Mountain’, featuring Dave Padden on vocals (formerly of
Annihilator) and Ryan Van Poederooyen on drums (Devon
Townsend Project.) A highlight of her career was performing the
internationally acclaimed Kaslo Jazz Etc. Festival with Sound of
the Sun just outside of her hometown of Nelson, BC. A festival
she imagined herself performing at as a little girl, dancing in the
water by the floating stage.
